    I want to buy a laptop to replace my old laptop and desktop computer. I searched a long time and found nothing. Laptops with sufficient computing power are too loud. You can make all computer components small enough for a laptop, but the problem is the heat. The laptop requires a socket for an external cooler. The idea is:

    POWERFUL AND SILENT LAPTOP

    - Intel Core i9 9980HK - high-end processor with eight
    cores based on the Coffee Lake architecture

    - GeForce RTX 2080 Ti - NVIDIA’s newest flagship
    graphics card is a revolution in gaming performance

    - external cooler socket for low-noise cooling (external
    coolers with noise level 20 dBA available)

    - compatibility with external liquid and heatpipe coolers
    with max. cooling capacity 350W

    - just plug in the external cooler and enjoy the powerful
    and silent gaming PC

    Is there something like that?
    Is it possible to produce?

    I'd think it would be possible for around $5,000-8,000 USD or more! Acer has made such a device in the past, in limited quantities, at an extreme price point ($10,000 MSRP?). Its not "silent" though. With that much performance, even on water, the fans are going to spin up.

    Nothing out there now (that I know of). No way to run at 20db with that hardware.

    "external cooler socket" - I mean a external socket for something like this:
    Corsair Hydro Series H115i PRO RGB 280mm Liquid CPU Cooler
    Noise Level: 20.4 dBA

    I do not think it has to be that expensive.

    First of all, that's a cooler for a desktop and it would take a LOT of work to try to make it work with any laptop (and there goes any portability you had). Second, it's no where near 20db when it has a load on it. Gamers Nexus did a review and theirs makes 37db.

    You would be better off having a custom waterblock made for the CPU/GPU, that would cost a lot of money, then you have to buy the pump/rad/res/tubing. You wouldn't be portable at all, and you're going to spend thousands.

    No. You either choose power and noise or silent and weak.

    You can't buy a Ferrari that sounds like a Toyota Corolla.

    All right, but 30dBA is easy to achieve. More noise would bother me.

    laptop + external cooler is more portable than a desktop computer :)

    Thanks. So far, no such external cooler is produced for a laptop, but it would be a good thing.
    This is what I want:

    That's great, I also want all of that in a laptop the size of an XPS 15 but with a 17" screen and I want it to never throttle. None of what you or I said is going to happen.

    Not for what you're asking for it wouldn't be.

    It's not the same. A 17" screen does not fit 15". That is physically impossible.
    CPU and GPU are small enough for a laptop. The Gamers Nexus test uses the Corsair H115i Pro Cooler for 140 W CPU with 37 dB (for 100 W CPU it is 30 dB in SILENT mode). For 350 W, the cooler must be 3.5 times larger (3.5 x 2.24 kg = 7.84 kg). The connection area and the pipe cross-section must be 3.5 times larger. Realizing all this is physically easy. Maybe someone would rather buy a 3kg cooler, but it would be louder.
